Standard

salman hamdani

Mohammad Salman Hamdani, a September 11th, 2001 1st-Responder, Fire Department of New York Emergency Medical Technician, and New York Police Department Cadet, once accused, then vindicated, of being a part of the conspiracy that was the destruction of the World-Trade Center, has know been honored, by Allah: first by being proven innocent of these horrendous accusations, then, by being posthumously honored, by the City of New York, with a section of 204th St., in Bayside, Queens, where he grew up, baring his name, which is now named “Salman Hamdani Way”. The street-naming ceremony took place in April 28th, 2014. This is such an auspicious opportunity for us all, both Muslim & Non-Muslim, to support the memory of one whom Allah has honored in the Mundane & may Allah honor him in the Hereafter, for sacrificing his own life, to save the lives of others…Amen

The Benefits of Joy & Pain:

Standard

Joy:

Joy is exactly like a brand-new toy.

It makes you feel like a happy boy.

It reminds you that everything should be pleasant, sweet.

It’s pure bliss, which completely knocks you off your feet.

Joy allows you to bask in a most divine-gift, called providence.

It causes us to become, immediately, immersed in confidence.

The gift of joy comes directly from Allah showing us that everything isn’t bad.

We don’t always have to experience negativity in life, and be miserable or sad.

We learn from Joy that Life doesn’t have to be a constant headache.

We don’t have to live our lives thinking that we’ll never get a brake.

It’s your key to enter the gates of serenity.

So, leave anxiety behind, and live happily.

Pain:

Sharp, and unyielding…this is such a most agonizing feeling.

It leaves your body as well as your soul yelling…screaming.

It’s something which makes the spirit sour & the stomach churn.

Even though injured, you are forced to appear strong and stern.

Pain is never planned & always unexpected.

It often leaves you confused & misdirected.

You have to brace your body and soul for suffering from lacerations.

Spiritual as well as also physical hurt often cause perilous conditions.

Recovery is, commonly, just as painful as the wounds, necessary to heal.

It can take a lot of time to recuperate; memories & scars are very real.

The thing about Pain is that it reminds us, that every taste of Life ain’t sweet.

It teaches us that we’re gonna fall; but, also how we can get back on our feet.
